Jiftip the Diktip claims to act a bit like a plaster for the glans at the tip of the penis.And, the instructions tell you to clean your genitals and then “align the shield” along the urinary “meatus” – that’s apparently the scientific word for the male opening.
Then you rub the product onto the penis like a temporary tattoo, claims iflscience.The theory behind the item is that when you ejaculate the fluid will not leave the body.When it comes down to it, it’s basically gluing the penis shut.Luckily, if you’re reading this with horror, the product is not actually approved for medical use and the website selling the Jiftip notes that it is simply for "novelty or entertainment purposes only."Yes, it’s a joke contraceptive so please don’t buy it and expect to use it instead of a condom.To confirm it’s definitely a spoof, when asked if it hurts to remove the Jiftip, the site stated: “Yes – some even call it penis torture.” The site also added: "Please do not risk it!
Jiftip is not approved for pregnancy or STD prevention usage." Dr Jen Gunter noted that the Jiftip is not backed by any scientific studies, though the listing does mention “beta-testing”.As such, avoid this product like the plague unless it’s as a funny joke to prank your mates or partner with (though do warn them that it doesn’t work too).The team behind the Jiftip describes the prank item as: “a hypoallergenic, feel shield.
The top layer is polyurethane film, the adhesive layer is used in specialty skin bandages, but with a maximum grip.”There’s even a video demonstrating how the bizarre product works! Do not use this product as contraception.Read more on dailystar.co.uk
